The Mystery of the Eagle’s Eye

The Eagle’s Eye stone holds a special place among gemstones for grounding the wearer and improving emotional balance. This stone has been used for hundreds of years in spiritual ceremonies due to its believed ability to connect the spiritual and earthly bodies.


Physical Properties

The Eagle’s Eye stone, also known as pietersite, is part of the family of quartz gemstones and is composed mainly of a combination of Tiger’s Eye and Hawk’s Eye quartz. It is also comprised of several other trace mineral compounds and amphibole fibers which create the characteristic blue chatoyancy, or “cat-eye” effect. 

This unique and rare combination of quartz gives the Eagle’s Eye stone a mysterious stormy quality and alluring blue-grey color which is why it is sometimes also called the “Tempest Stone.”

The geological process of creating the Eagle’s Eye stone entails enormous amounts of pressure and stretching. This process gives it remarkable hardness and durability, which is reflected in the metaphysical properties that it possesses.

Metaphysical Properties

  • Grounding

While streaks of blue, grey, and red may look chaotic, the Eagle’s Eye stone is often used for its grounding properties during spiritual journeying ceremonies to keep you connected with your etheric body. This same stability and grounding effect also makes it an effective stone for promoting deep concentration and enhancing decision-making skills, which makes it useful for improving the flow of your work and study.

  • Emotional Balance

In opposition to the swirling turmoil of the color pattern, Eagle’s Eye stones are considered to be effective for calming emotional turmoil and providing balance and clarity to your mind. Eagle’s Eye stones also possess the power to cleanse your aura of negative emotions and dispel illusions, allowing you to see more clearly the lies of others and those you tell yourself.

This helps removes self-doubt, promotes confidence and boosts your self-esteem allowing you to fulfill your potential without emotional blockages in your way.

  • Unleashing Creativity

Eagle’s Eye stones are associated with the sacral and solar plexus chakras, which are used to remove energy blockages that can hamper your creativity. Wearing Eagle’s Eye stones around the sacral chakra can soothe a tumultuous nervous system and bring you into the present moment so that you can more readily access the most creative parts of your inner mind.

  • Enhancing Spirituality

Eagle’s Eye stones are said to be powerful stones for enhancing the vision and scope of your Third Eye chakra, which is why many crystal healing practitioners suggest it for use during meditation and spiritual growth exercises. It is suggested that Eagle’s Eye can be used to become more aware of your inner thoughts and emotions, allowing you to live a more mindful and fulfilling life.


Eagle’s Eye Jewelry

The color and composition of the Eagle’s Eye stone make it ideal for both men’s and women’s jewelry.

Eagle’s Eye stones pair well with natural textiles such as leather, as well as precious metals such as gold and silver. The hardness of the stone also helps it to stand up to tougher metals and alloys such as the titanium often used in men’s pieces.

Eagle’s Eye stones match beautifully with nature-inspired colored gemstones and crystals such as amber, black agate, and olive jade. It also works synergistically with its related stones, including Tiger’s Eye and Hawk’s Eye to enhance the metaphysical properties and complement the colorful, streaked pattern of the stones.

Final Thoughts

The Eagle’s Eye stone’s unique and mysterious qualities make it a valuable addition to any gemstone collection. Accessorize your wardrobe with a stunning Eagle’s Eye piece of jewelry, which is not only beautiful but can also improve your spiritual and emotional state.
